Hello,

I am looking for information concerning a John Simko.  He lost his leg sometime in 1912 in a mining accident.  He lived in Daisytown, Washington, Pa. so I am not sure what mine he worked in.  He was then released and given about $500.00 to leave the area.  He was married to Marie Simko, nee Chochol.  Thank you for your time.  Sylvia.
